Mar 14 2022, 8:37 pm

As spring comes hurtling towards us, so too does an impressive slate of new movies.

Winter is a fun time to cozy up and watch flicks on streaming services sure, but something about the AC and nice weather make movie theatres very enticing once the weather heats up.

And as the weather heats up, so too does Hollywood’s list of movies that will be coming to Canada this year. From the usual crop of superhero movies, sci-fis, thrillers, comedies, dramas, some dinosaurs, and everything in between, here are the popular movies and corresponding dates coming to Canadian theatres this spring (until the blockbuster summer season kicks off on June 21.)
